well it started out ok..Got the pup to the kennel at 9am(20 minite drive + there)...then the hour drive....then...

we get to the hospital and have to wait for the xray people. then one comes out and looks at the paper for the xray in the tray. says it will be a few minites...sets it down. now this is before 10. then the lab girl comes in the room looks at the paper and says it will be a few minites yet till they are back from coffee. Then thirty they come back from COFFEE!! both at the same time. if thier had been an emergentcy we would have been pushed way back. Then an older french woman had come in in a wheel chair and was taken in first. the xray woman looked at us and said...we wont be long hers will take less time. then says you havent been here long. I say half an hour...she says well she is going first. Now i know i have to be patient...but we have the dr appt at 1110 and have the drive across town yet. But for coffe...for both of them!!

My goodness Glenda,
Talk about a long day, whew!
You poor thing & you were being nice
Not so sure I would have when waiting for those xrays & having that bit of talk with that gal ::shaking head::
Least it is over & you did get everything finished you needed to right ?
Good Grant is getting better & hopefully the sleep clinic will help.
I guess while he is there you will sleep better as well
As for you sounds like you are doing ok for the most part too right?
I guess the good news is that the roads weren't

My Friday the 13th was uneventful - don't think I broke any mirrors -

Except for the bitter cold, it was ok!

I saw on a tv report that short bursts of walking in cold air triggers the immune system - I do that three or four times a day with the doggies, maybe it is helping, I don't know!

I would be tired of waiting too. Did you bring a book?

Wow on the waiting!

Glad your diabetes is going fine, your dh is getting better. That your asthma is good.

Hope nothing too serious about the other thing. Glad you went except for the longest wait.

Understand about the carts in the aisles of stores and people talking. Totally uncurteous.

we made it through on the food we had...just wanted something exciting. when you do your own cooking 24/7 because there are no decent resterants near you...you like a change
